We stayed 10 nights here and loved it.
Our room was large (the deluxe room) and had air con,
The communal kitchen was very well stocked and clean (Fridge, gas stoves, pots, pans, utensils plates, etc.). It was nice to talk with other travellers here each night/day,
The bed was comfortable,
The owner was great, friendly and very helpful in organising tours etc.
You can visit Corcovado from here.
Good location - in town but not on the main streets so it's quiet. 5 min walk to the big supermarket and the bay. The airplanes were really a bother.
The only thing that could be improved was the cleaning of the room. It only got cleaned once during our stay. No biggy though.
Be prepared to wake up early because noise travels well in the main part of the cabinas so when someone is awake and talking it feels like they are in your room yelling at you.
The beach is 40min bike ride away. But we didn't like the beach very much anyway. It's a black sand beach so the sand is scorching hot and when we went the waves were rough and there were stinging jellyfish. We would choose to stay in the town again.
